What they say…

Last Sunday morning, I had to go out to do something and my tummy was acting up on me. It probably was the heat the day before when we had to leave the house before dawn to go to my girl’s school in the jungle for the replacement classes and then take her home again in the blistering hot afternoon for the weekend. While I was out, I decided to go for something to eat and even though the best thing for me in my condition would be a bowl of porridge, I just did not feel like it.

In the end, I stopped by this coffee shop…

Tung Ming Cafe

…where I liked the kampua mee

…and also the chin th’ng mee (noodles in clear soup)…

I ask some people that I know why they prefer the coffee shop at the other end of that same block when personally, I do not think what they dish out there is all that nice. From what they say, it seems that they feel this place is rather dirty.

Hmmm…I guess they should do something to clean up the shop, arrange everything nicely and neatly and not simply throw here, there and everywhere and spruce up the place a bit. Otherwise, I do not think it is that bad and obviously, many do not think so too – there are always a lot of people stopping by there for a bite.

I should not be having anything too oily so I opted for the chin th’ng mee but with pian sip instead of the slices of meat (RM2.80)…

…and yes, I did quite enjoy it…

…along with my kopi-o that was only a ringgit a glass (small).

Yes, they did give the hot water as required by our municipal council for me to dip the chopsticks and spoon before using them to eat. The only thing that I was not all that in favour of was their use of plastic to serve something piping hot – I would rather that they use porcelain or glass instead.

TUNG MING CAFE (2.307601, 111.824983) is located along Lorong Delta 10, the second shop in the first block of shops on your right, after the first one – a grocery store, as you turn into the lane from Jalan Delta in the vicinity of the houses behind the Delta Public Swimming Pool.
